Dude Buy a good powerbank instead of making rediculas requests like some ppl here to increase the battery to almost 5000 mah & and make the phone a brick LOL.

Where Note 5 gives more than 24 hours in single charge with non-removable battery and same activity. Interesting...

For this price I will buy an ultra book PC ! Just an gimmick including its price. Not all a upgrade when compared with Note 3 and Note 4 !
If you have Note3/Note4 and looking for a upgrade dont go for this device coz there wont be any big changes in this except new built panel but price wise it is

It will give you all the juice you need during your long work and trip use. No need for spare battery.

But then again, in the States - I have the option to have unlimited data with Direct TV + AT&T service. But before they offered that package I had 15GB of data a month. I'd cap that at the end of the month without downloading loading movies or streaming music.
Rarely use the WiFi.

Besides, there are lots of free WiFi almost everywhere, so no need to keep LTE always on. In transportations, in café, in malls, and also work places. One can switch it on only if there is no free WiFi available. Even at home, unless you are poor enough and can't afford ADSL subscription, I don't think so.

It doesn't matter how efficient the device is at standby. Once you keep using internet connection, it drains the SAME way in any device. If you're heavy on internet via LTE, you'll need to either have that connected to a power source like a powerbank MOST of the time, or get a third party extended battery so to have double or tripple the battery capacity. Choosing the latter is more pratical.
We have greater demands now with our devices for services and high speed connections, and yet the battery technology has not changed in over 15 years. "Fast" charging actually degrades the battery even faster, and it does not help increase power efficiency. Cycling through a number of batteries helps to slow down the degradation. However, Samsung is now banking on sealed battery to guarantee your device won't be working properly by the time a new iteration comes out.

Poor sales and complaints are two things big companies like Samsung listen too... you can thank us when your GN6 has a bigger battery and SD card :-)

I just suspect this is an experiment gone wrong.

No complaints means "it's okay that we took out calendar annotation functions, took out Nearby Devices function, took out memory expansion, took out versatility of removable battery, took out infrared remote functions, and the rear glass breaks easily on one drop, but no one is complaining...". All of these things we enjoyed with past Galaxy Note devices. Now all we have is a nerfed and more fragile Note.5.
Indeed Samsung is really taking strides to make ammends with AT LEAST giving back memory expansion starting with the S7. If it wasn't for Samsung offering a Wacom digitizer pen (S Pen), and if Microsoft finally comes out with a Surface smartphone, then it's adios to Samsung for me. I was pretty amazed at what they had done with the previous Galaxy Notes as powerhouse devices.

PARAG B, 03 Feb 2016yes man if u remember u already have my empathy for you abt the only 32 gb model in ur region.... moreNot expecting empathy... :-)
If enough people make enough noise about stupid product decisions (small storage space, moderate battery life) then sales will be impacted and the decisions changed on the next model and its a win for everyone.
It seems to be working because the S7 is strongly rumored to have a lot bigger battery and bringing the SD card back... MORE POWER TO THE NOISY FEW! :-)
